Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner appears to be looking into setting up a Trump television network after the November election, according to reporting today from the Financial Times.

The FT reports that Kushner contacted the influential TV deal-maker Aryeh Bourkoff, of the investment bank LionTree. But Trump has denied wanting to start his own network.

Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Derek Thompson of The Atlantic about the implications of such a network.
